What to watch on Wednesday, April 24...
Survivor: Caramoan - Fans vs. Favorites
The Three Amigos resort to deception in order to seize control of the game, and hopefully that entails staging an ersatz revival of To Tell the Truth. Also in “Come Over to the Dark Side,” the food auction returns, now with more pierogi than ever!
8pm, The CW
In “Home Invasion,” a sting operation aiming to capture Deadshot alive conflicts with Diggle’s goal of putting the assassin six feet under (at least until the show introduces Lazarus Pits or Felix Faust or something like that into continuity). On Origin Island, Shado trains Oliver in the art of rapidly discharging lethal projectiles.
9pm, The CW
With Sam the worse for wear after the second trial, Dean puts his brother on the 15-day DL and calls up Charlie (Felicia Day) for hunter training in “Pac-Man Fever.” But could the hacker be withholding a potentially deadly secret? Since a 44-minute training montage would get dull by the second act break, I’m going to say: probably!
Law & Order: SVU
“Girl Dishonored” finds Benson and the squad investigating a college campus where a sorority pledge was allegedly raped. Amid the unreliable witness accounts, the detectives encounter a deep-seated culture of students and administrators sticking their heads in the sand, and less comfortable places, when it comes to such deplorable incidents.
A war bond fundraiser at Victory Munitions promises the kind of rollicking fun you can only have when you get explosive devices and Canadians together in close proximity. At the party, Gene’s chaotic behavior exacerbates the tension between Lorna and Gladys, while elsewhere in “Where There’s Smoke,” Betty meets a female soldier and an old acquaintance makes Marco an offer.
How to Live With Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life)
Having a tough time with her parents’ divorce in "How to Not Screw Up Your Kid," Natalie turns to the power of imagination! And emotional manipulation, it would seem, because let’s face it, kids are kind of jerks. Meanwhile, Elaine strong-arms Max into visiting a sick aunt who’s not long for this world.
SEASON 3 FINALE, 10pm, A&E
“Aloha, Robertsons!” sees Willie spiriting the family off to Hawaii for some much-needed R&R. But his plans for togetherness are thwarted by the relatives’ differing ideas of a good time, to say nothing of that cursed tiki and the macabre old man imprisoning Si in a cave.
Elizabeth and Philip suspect a set-up in “The Oath” as they jump through hoops while pursuing supposedly critical intel. On the FBI front, Stan’s operation against Directorate S generates surprising results. Probably not, like, “single-handedly ending the Cold War through the magic of interpretative dance” surprising, but they catch him off-guard nonetheless.
“Juliet Wears the Pantsuit,” announces the episode title, but will that fashion-forward ensemble protect her from a new buddy who Shawn believes is a murderer? It seems unlikely, assuming said pantsuit is not made of Kevlar, or possibly the unstable molecules used to make the Fantastic Four’s uniforms. Boy, how cool would it be if Juliet could turn invisible and fly and make forcefields? Okay, y’all go watch TV now—I have fan fiction to write.
